Grit and balls. The Boston Celtics have been doing this for the last three months. Grinding through subpar offense. Playing tenacious defense. Fighting through adversity. They got their biggest test tonight in a sense. Pierce, Rondo and Allen combined for 11-of-43 shooting from the field, yet it didn’t matter. Rondo started the comeback, Pierce hit the dagger and Ray Allen hits his free throws when it mattered.
And now, they’re coming home with a chance to close it out.
Full grades on the way…
